Michael Moore’s new book -- catching the zeitgeist of three whole years ago, it’s titled Dude, Where’s My Country? -- is due for release on October 7. What can readers expect?

When the powers-that-be succeeded in ignoring-and then silencing-the nation's widespread dissent over war, one man stood on an Oscar stage and, in front of a billion people ...

... was booed by them.

And now he's back — daring to ask the most urgent question of these perilous times:

”Can I have fries with that?”

Michael Moore is on a mission in his new book: Regime Change. The man who slithered into the White House on tracks greased by his daddy's oil buddies is one of many targets in Mike's blistering follow-up to his smash #1 hit Stupid White Men, the biggest-selling nonfiction book of the year.

He also topped the fiction charts.

Now no one is safe: corporate barons who have bilked millions out of their employees' lifetime savings, legislators who have stripped away our civil liberties in the name of "homeland security," and even that right-wing brother-in-law of yours (yes, we all have one) who manages, year after year, through his babbling idiocy, to ruin Thanksgiving dinner.

Michael has a vested interest in the ruination of dinners. Attack New York, send jets into the Pentagon, release anthrax ... all of that he can can cope with. But for the love of God don’t you bastards ruin his dinner!

Of course, his book will sell massively. Which is a good thing; after all, remember the awesome power of his anti-Republican Payback Tuesday rant. Thanks for the assist, porko.

Mikey should keep in mind that all of the cooperate shenanigans at MCI, Global Crossing, Enron, Etc happened on Billy Boy Clintons watch.

Does anyone know what artificial objects are visible from outer space?

I think its "the Great Wall of China", "the Panama Canal", and "Micheal Moores lunch".

"Michael Moore’s new book -- catching the zeitgeist of three whole years ago, it’s titled Dude, Where’s My Country? -- is due for release on October 7."

Can we get the ACLU to delay the release until March?

It's about the FOOOOOOD!

An "administration-ending" book?

Run for your life, Dubya! Michael Moore is writing a book!

Jeebus, forget Moore's appetite - I think his ego is bigger.

Talk about projection! Moore accuses Bush of "slithering" along tracks that have been "greased" by something or other. Eeeeuuw!

I was looking at the moon once, and I saw a reflection of Michael Moore's ass.

I hope the book tanks.

Mikey the rollercoaster tongue man wants to be King - maker.

Pause for serious reflection on his merits ,his genuine folksy home-spun pearls, the earnestness of the man.

Ha, ha,ha,ha, ha, ha, ha.

"Michael Moore's lunch" And thats just when he goes through the drive-thru.

Why is this Trot's hopeless book still in the top 10 best seller list here in Oz? I just don't understand it.

Look on the bright side. Everyone who buys that book is going to vote for Howard Dean (or the equivalent if Dean tanks and Kerry or Clark is the nominee), and every dollar they spend supporting TubAss's idiocy is a dollar less to spread their own bile. For that matter, it is a tug-of-war between the HillBillarys, Al Franken, and TubAss for the book dollar that will not go to fund Democratic candidates at all levels. Thank the authors for the landslide.

It's funny, in his Stupid White Men book, he actually does trash the Democrats, or at least Clinton. But now he seems to have simply toed the party line, and he is apparently a Clark supporter, who was/is the Clinton guy.

Probably because what he lacks in facts he makes up for in entertainment value.

Michael who? Just ignore the turd; hot air floats away and he will too.

Dude, where's my gun?

Posted by: pooh at September 24, 2003 at 12:59 PM

Very odd. Moore says that the U.S. bombing in Bosnia constituted war crimes. U.S. didn't get approval by the U.N. and we killed civilians. Near the end of his movie, Bowling for Columbine, he has scenes of civilians killed by errant air strikes.

General Clark was, of course, the C-in-C of that campaign. Ergo, Clark is a war criminal, since he was ordering the air strikes and other action.

And now, Moore endorses Clark for the Presidency.

Consistency, common sense, logic - not three of Moore's finer attributes.

whats with leftie idiots and food? first there's that big hawk guy and his lunch fetish : now there's FAT MICK MOORE and his DINNER thing. You'd think these people would oppose excessive consumption on principle alone..

Post you weight, height and body fat level first, then comment.

Its pretty lame when you have to criticise someone for being overtweight above all else. Shows you really have no clue what you are talking about.

At least get stuck into some of the factual issues in his books and movies first. Makes for a much better and more coherent argument.

Posted by: ANdy at September 24, 2003 at 10:43 PM

Good point, SMG about Clark being a war criminal by Moore's logic.

At least Moore is consistent on white American men attacking without UN approval - I doubt he'd hold Saddam to the same standards though.

Posted by: Andjam at September 24, 2003 at 10:46 PM

I think the ad hominem attacks on Moore are fairly puerile too, and I've avoided commenting on his weightyness.

But think of the "root causes", Andy: he is loathed much more than fellow leftists such as Jimmy Carter, Naomi Klein, John Pilger, etc. I suspect it reflects him having a level of mendacity that surpasses others on the left.

Posted by: Andjam at September 24, 2003 at 11:04 PM

So... you're saying he's not fat?

Posted by: roscoe p coltrane at September 25, 2003 at 09:33 AM

Dude, where's Mike Hunt?
